What is a promise that cannot be kept?

Nothing more than a maze of lies.

What is the use of trying to trust,

When everyone always wears a disguise?

So many promises have been broken,

And so many people are in pain.

All of our efforts,

Where just in vain.

Because sometimes not all promises can be kept,

I've learned that the hard way.

Promises that were made long ago,

Have been broken today.

They promised they wouldn't separate us,

But that promise was never even put into play.

Even though I tried so hard,

To make you stay.

They made so many promises,

That they just couldn't keep.

Broken promises run through my head,

Making me lose sleep.

I made a promise,

To someone I held dear.

I promised that I would soon follow him

And until then keep him near.

But at the same time,

I made a promise to you,

That I would always stay,

And that my love was true.

But not all promises can by kept, my love.

Sometimes things change.

Somethings all our plans,

Must be rearranged.

Time is running short,

And faith is running low.

More promises ae about to be broken,

And true colors will finally show.

When the last promise has been broken,

All will be well once more.

No more promises will be broken,

Which is something to adore.

And so I will break one last promise,

A promise I swore I would never undo.

Because that promise just isn't worth keeping,

Even if it was a promise to you.

That promise means nothing now,

Because it seems you no longer care.

Because that promise I gave to you,

Is a cross that I must bear.

I'm sorry my love,

But not all promises can be kept.

I thought that this was a promise I could keep,

But that was before you left.
